The best way to start my day

This is a daily routine for my wife and I. Every morning we listen to curiosity daily while we make our breakfast and start our day. Top notch podcast, upbeat and amazing topics.

Would be great, but...

This would be so great if the host, Ashely, wasn’t so obnoxiously chipper. Can she tone it down a bit?

Great facts, sometimes uber-perky voices

I love the facts & learn so much! Every day is different & covers so many topics even in a week.

At times the hosts’ voices sound overly cheerful like almost faking it. They do seem like genuinely enthusiastic people. Just relax & be yourselves you deserve it :)
